I think Todd Zwillick needs to do his home work. His questioning it out of left field. He does not know how the supreme court work. Even though Presidents would would love to have their own judges on the court it is not the proper protocal to push for the a judge to retire of resign. Having been a llistener of WNYC for over 25 years I must say they have step down significantly with Todd. He shoudl listen to Mr Loparte. He woudl learn so much about interviewing and how to prepare for a show. The station might be better without him. He did not know that in England the Prime Minister must call the election by a certain date. Implying that Gordon Brown must be be very confident to call the election now. We deserve better.
